And second, how do you expect to drive that car around with no engine in there. And the police will pull you over with no hood or fenders. Trust me, I know!
I hope that people know that I am kidding.

I am waiting to do the exterior until the car is running and all of the problems are worked out. But it is also going white.

Good thing, looks like a twizzler down the side of the car. Looks like you have had parts on and off a few times.

Since you're making so much forward progress, you might want to change the title. Barack Hussein's "change" has proven to be a catastrophe.

So I have been slacking a lot lately. Haven't had time to even think about this car let alone actually work on it. Too busy working, building drift cars, and filming. But I found some time tonight for it finally!

:D

L19 BLANG!

Image

Head is all torqued down and just need a few more very minor things till she is complete.

Image

Going to be ordering all of my wiring stuff for the engine harness tonight. Going to build the harness on the motor and tuck it in nice and tight. Also decided I am not going to use the stock harness location and make a new one out of sight. More to come!

Sorry for the shitty quality pics. From my phone with a very scratched lens =/

The fusebox is officially relocated! I was pretty worried about doing this but now that it's done, It was actually really easy. Just need to plan and label EVERYThing.

Where I cut and labeled the harness.

Image

Halfway through lengthening the wires. All soldered and heat shrinked.

Image

Image

Onto the fusebox side.

Image

And all done! Fuse box is mounted, just had to pull the harness back through the firewall!

I actually did something besides stare at the car this weekend. I moved recently and the car has been at the other house for prob 3 months. Finally moved it to the new place, and am done staring at all these parts on the shelf. Ordered a bunch of stuff with my tax return. Should hopefully be here this week sometime. JNZ tuning is one of the best places I have had the pleasure of dealing with. Top notch customer service, nothing compared to STM's lack there of. Got the last little pieces to get the motor 100% and should be in soon. Depending on my schedule of course. All I have are terrible cell phone pics. so sorry for that.

First off, think before you buy a new engine stand. Do not assemble it inside the room, and then build the entire motor inside that very same room. It may become extremely difficult when it comes time for it to be moved out...

Image

On that note, here's the car in its new resting place.

Image

I also scored some EVO brakes from a buddy parting out his car. Pretty nice difference in size. :)

No more running 16's, time for some nicer wheels ;)

Image

Also installed the STM ABS delete kit, even though my car was already non-ABS. I had to cut the front lines because they were so rusty. so I opted to go stainless to hide the lines completely. Very nice kit.

Image

That about it for now. I'll update more in a few days.

And sorry for the lack of progress. This is what has been keeping me away from this thing.

I literally am out of town every weekend filming somewhere. It has been insane. I absolutely love it though. I haven't lost site in the car, have just been busy with my other hobby!
